immediately upon signing. >> union offer to take the pay, tension, and healthcare issues that both sides agree on and send a sticking point, the work world to an independent arbitrator to make a final decision. in a hastily called news conference, bart management slapped the plan down. >> union letters is a repeat of the same unacceptable offer they made at the bargaining table yesterday. >> it's not the same thing. >> bart management wants the unions to come back to the bargaining table and consider sending the entire package to arbitration, not pieces of it. the union argues doing that could stretch a strike into weeks or longer. at this point, the unions are appealing to bart management to reach out to them, to ask any questions they have, whatsoever, to just give them a call, bart management remained firm on this. so again, not seeing much movement. live in berkeley, kristen ayers, kpix5. >> on the roads and on the
